Beyoncé, with nine nominations, Dua Lipa and Taylor Swift, with six, are the most nominated artists at 63 Grammy awards, which will be delivered on January 31 in Los Angeles (USA) with a ceremony reinvented by the pandemic of the coronavirus.

Behind, with four nominations each, are artists such as Justin Bieber, Megan Thee Stallion, Phoebe Bridgers and Billie Eilish, the latter the great winner of the last edition to triumph in the four star categories, including album of the year, with only 18 years.

For their part, among Latinos, Bad Bunny achieved two nominations, one for best pop duo thanks to ‘Un Día (One Day)’ with J Balvin, Dua Lipa and Tainy, as well as another nomination for best Latin pop / urban album for their acclaimed ‘YHLQMDLG’.

After the announcement of the nominations, Beyoncé leaves as a favorite for her song ‘Black Parade’, inspired by the racial protests in the United States, which is candidate for record of the year and song of the year, this last category being an award for composers.

‘Black Parade’ also stood out among the candidate songs of the R&B genre (Rhythm and blues), while its movie ‘Black Is King’ did the same in the video categories.

Likewise, his other success, the remix of ‘Savage’ with rapper Megan Thee Stallion, also aspires to take the award for recording of the year, in addition to the best rap performance.

For its part, Taylor Swift could take the Grammy for album of the year for the third time thanks to ‘Folklore’, an album composed during the quarantine and released by surprise that has dazzled audiences and earned the respect of critics. ‘Cardigan’, the lead single from that album, is among the nominees for song of the year as well as in the genre-specific pop category, along with another song from the album performed with Bon Iver, ‘Exile’.

Dua Lipa, who just two years ago took the Grammy to the revelation artist, this year aims to win in three star categories: recording, song and album of the year. The British’s best-selling album, ‘Future Nostalgia’, and her featured song, ‘Don’t Start Now’, could snatch Beyoncé and Taylor Swift victory in the most disputed sections.
